I think the --jobs explanation should be added.

Here, --jobs is the option of make, not emerge. Old link: Tusooa 09:37, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

That's what -j5 is in the example, right? In Gentoo's documentation it's always "-jX", not "--jobs=X", so I don't think there's a point of complicating things. I left the part you added about CPUs+1, but other than that - the way I see it - what you added is the same thing as is described above. --Alec 01:05, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Oh, yes. That's just the same thing... --Tusooa 01:53, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Explanation needed for the CPU + 1 rule

I think an explanation for the CPU + 1 rule is needed. For example I always use just the CPU number itself because, as far as I know, each CPU will get a make job. I can't understand the "plus one". Fturco 17:18, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

The article doesn't include the CPU + 1 rule anymore. Fturco (talk) 15:13, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
